Chapter Two

I walked home slowly after Michael, Rachael, Rebecca and I all shared the day's events. It was nearly three thirty when I got home. Mom and Darryl wouldn't be home until around five or six. I heard Trish talking away on the phone in her room as I headed up the stairs to my own.

I plopped down on my floor and did whatever homework I had, which was basically just to fill out my home address and number and all of that about four or five times and whatever I had left for math. And once I started that I couldn't stop thinking about Zacky. That’s why it took around an hour to finish the twelve or so simplifying problems I had left. It never took me that long to do something as simple as that.

I finished about two seconds before I heard the front door open and heard my mother and Darryl enter the house. I put everything back in my backpack and went down stairs. "Hey honey, how was school?" my mom asked when she saw me and gave me a quick hug.

"It was okay," I replied.

"Did you-"

"Go upstairs and do your homework," Darryl commanded, cutting my mom off.

"I already-"

"I said go do your homework," he said coldly. My mother was blind to his cruelty towards me and waltzed into the kitchen.

"But it's already done-"

"Are you contradicting me?" he asked, raising his voice.

"No, I'm just saying-"

"Go to your room, you’re grounded!" he almost yelled at me. I stared blankly at him. I thought of shouting back at him or throwing my finished homework in his face but that would be rather immature. Instead I turned on my heels and passed Trisha going up to my room, she didn't even notice me. She never did unless she needed something from me.

"Did you do your homework?" I heard Darryl ask her as she entered the living room.

"Yes," she said plainly, an obvious lie.

"Good girl," he complemented her and I stopped dead in my tracks. It was so unfair that I wanted to cry. He grounded me for doing my homework and praised her for talking on the phone. I sighed and continued to my room. I didn't even know how long I was grounded for.

"Honey, dinner is ready," I heard my mom knock at my door. I crawled back in the house through my window and went to the door.

"I don't feel too good, I'm probably just going to go to sleep," I lied. I looked at my mother through my barely opened bedroom door. She looked worried and placed a hand on my cheek.

"You feel a bit cold. Do you want a space heater in your room?"

"No I'll be fine."

"Okay. If you need anything just call me, okay hun?"

"Okay mom."

I shut my door and went back to staring at the stars on my little section of roof outside my window. Zacky ended up snaking his was back into my mind not soon after and I couldn’t stop thinking about him...

I woke up suddenly from a gust of cold air. I looked around myself and saw I had fallen asleep on the roof. I sat up and rubbed my stiff back. A roof was no place to fall asleep, that was for sure. I stood up stiffly and crawled back into my room, making sure I was quiet and made my way to the closet so I could change into my pjs. After changing I crawled into my warm sanctuary of a bed and glanced at the clock before drifting off to sleep again. It was two am.
